The Fundamental (Basic) Counting Principle is a computational procedure to determine the total number of possible outcomes when there are multiple choices or several events. It is the product of the number of outcomes for each choice or event that can be chosen individually.

A spirit of investigation and experimentation should permeate probability instruction, where students are actively engaged in explorations and have opportunities to use manipulatives, tables, tree diagrams, and lists.

Probability is the measure of likelihood that an event will occur. An event is a collection of outcomes from an investigation or experiment.

The probability of an event can be expressed as a fraction, where the numerator represents the number of favorable outcomes and the denominator represents the total number of possible outcomes. If all the outcomes of an event are equally likely to occur, the probability of the event is equal to: (number of favorable outcomes)/(total number of possible outcomes).

Students should have opportunities to describe in informal terms (e.g., impossible, unlikely, equally likely, likely, and certain) the degree of likelihood of an event occurring. Activities should include real-life examples.
